Nearly a decade ago, Tish Beck, a mother of two from La Grande, Oregon, noticed soreness in the back of her thigh. At first, she thought it was a pulled muscle from work on the family farm. However, an MRI, and later a biopsy, showed it to be spindle cell sarcoma, a rare cancer. She was treated over many months at OHSU and spent more than 40 days in the hospital. Tish has had multiple recurrences in which she received additional radiation. Today, Tish is doing well and only goes in for check-ups every 4 months.
